Mad Science
Mad Science of Maine sparks imaginative learning for K-6th graders when school is out! Children experience first-hand what science is all about by getting hands-on with project-based activities, observing fascinating demonstrations, taking part in inquiry-based discussions, and by extending their learning at home with correlated take-home projects. Engaged, active, enthusiastic, and of course FUN learning is what we are all about!

Mad Science Summer Camp!
Eureka! The Inventors Camp

Inspire the inventor and scientist in you during this week of discovery and invention. Each day children   will be given a series of challenges which must be overcome using basic materials, simple machines,   tips from world famous inventors and the most   important thing of all– your mind! If you were stranded   on a desert island how would you survive? You will   need to build shelter, find food  and purify water,   protect yourself and your   team mates from the   elements and find a way off the island. Journey to   the future and examine   the ultramodern inventions of   the 23rd century. Then design the future - today!   Create mini light sabers, mini-space stations, and   electric flying contraptions. With a little bit of ingenuity, you’ll construct catapults and forts, build Ruberg contraptions that perform simple tasks, and experiment with humanoid robots. Take home projects include ping-pong ball launchers, mousetrap contraption cars, mystery sticks, tubular blow darts, and other wacky contraptions. While Thomas Edison said, “invention is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration” this camp is 100% FUN!

Radical Robots
Radical Robots
Class Summary: Who isn’t fascinated by the wonderful world of robotics! Throughout this course, children will get the opportunity to act out a robot, remote control device, and an automaton. In addition, students will learn how to use the element of sound to control an automaton, make a robot score a goal in an exciting game of soccer, and attempt to move a robot through a challenging maze!

Educational Value: This course teaches students the important role that science plays in technology. The children will help to operate robotic devices in a way in which the robots appear to have humanlike skills. Students will learns the basic of robotics and exactly what it takes to build the internal systems of robotic contraptions. Towards the end of the course, the children will get a chance to build their very own mechanical robot hand to take home!
